INTRODUCTION. 



THE first portion of the history of the family of John Law- 
rence was printed in 1847. I was induced to engage in the 
work by Mr. Amos Lawrence and others desirous to know the 
ancestry of the Lawrences of New England. Of the SOO copies 
printed, Mr. Lawrence took 100, paying for the same. Mr. Z. 
Hosmer paid for 100 copies, leaving 100 for myself. This edi- 
tion was given away and sent over the country. 

The second edition of 500 copies, published in 1857, was 
greatly aided by a donation of 9100 from Amos A. Lawrence, 
Esq., towards the expense of printing, reducing very much the 
price to subscribers and the public. 

The edition of 1869 was very expensive, and but for the 
interest taken and aid given by a few persons of aipple means 
could not have been published. The loss on copies sold or sent 
to subscribers, for which payment has not been received, and the 
loss by fire of 100 copies, leaves the work performed for the 
Lawrences ver}' far from being remunerative. But still they 
come, new families, new branches, changes, and additions, call- 
ing for another part to supplement the genealogy and give all 
waiting a place in the published history of the descendants of 
John Lawrence of Watertown. 

Feeling a responsibility to such which no other person could 
be expected to share, this last work has been attempted with the 
hope that at least I shall not suffer a pecuniary loss. It is there- 
fore desired that all families represented in this book take in- 
terest in the circulation, and promote, as far as possible, the sale 
of copies. 

As this will be the only portion of the genealogy some fami-

lies can obtain, and for other reasons, the first and second gen- 
erations are given as in the edition of 1869. 

A very few copies of that edition remain for sale, and the cir- 
cumstances of the case render it necessary to sell them as soon 
and get as mach for them as possible.

THE FAMILY, ITS RELATIONS TO SOCIETY, AND 

GENEALOGY. 

In date and form it is primeval^ as divinely ordained in E^en by God, 
in the creation of man, male and female ; and thmr uiion in marriage, 
whereby they became one flesh, was the first manifestation of the human 
race in social relations'&nd duties. 

The fitmily is dual as to parentage, or persons joined in marriage, 
while primeval and a unit in form. Adam and Eve, the first, were also 
the only, persons created as progenitors of mankind. One man and one 
woman were thus divinely constituted the parents of the race. 

Moreover, it is normal^ as being the only established and lawful state 
of social union and life for mankind. 

This union of man and woman, and state of those one in heart, obliga- 
tions, and duties, is alone normal and adapted to the wants and welfare 
of the race. 

The fiimily is germinal^ — the seed-bud or appointed means for the 
propagation of the human race. Grod blessed the man and woman cre- 
ated and joined in marriage by Him, and said, " be fruitful and multiply, 
and replenish the earth.'' Hence, ^ marriage is" not only ^honorable 
in all," but the famOy state is the only one approved of God, and lawful 
to man, for the propagation of his species. While, therefore, the race 
germinates in the family, and is propagated fi^m generation to genera- 
tion, a thousand social relations, duties, comforts, and delights spring up 
therein to bless mankind.

The family U essemtialy as without it the world would be a mere chaos 
of haman beings. The domestic state is indispensable to the health and 
comfort of mankind. 

It is essentially necessary to that moral purity in the sexes required 
by Grod, and alone respectable among men. It is the substratum or 
ground-work of all social relations, domestic comforts, and good manners 
in society. 

THE FAMILY A TTPA 

It 18 specially t^pieci^ as it foreshadows,— ^ first, the Sdhooi, in the 
nurture and education of diOdren. Home-education b all some children 
€Ter have. Second, the Stai^ Family government was the first 
known. ^ 

The fitther was a pnnce or ruler in his hotise, as Abraham and the 
patriardis. Children were subjecti of goverhihent first in the family. 
Obedience to parental authority insures obedienoe in the State. £quity 
and law in the family are siich in the State. 

Third, the Okurek, Indeed, in the first ages of the race, piety, fear, 
and worship of Qod, were confined to the &mily. NattLrally enoi^h has 
llhe fifcther been regarded both a prince and a priest in his own house; 
and as &r as diildren are trained in the love and service of Gk>d, so fiur 
is there hope for the Chi^rch of Qirist 

The conclusion of the sil^bject is, that the fitmHy, as constituted in 
man^s creation and condition in Eden, is universal. Not for Adam and 
Eve only, and their posterity to the deli^ ; not for Noah and his sons 
only, in their generations, — but for the human race in all time, was the 
fitmily state ordained, that every man and woman might share and enjoy 
its blessings. How else shall the people of our land and the world 
have homes ? How else shall the tender and endearing relations of kin- 
dred be perpetuated? How, without the family, can domestic happiness 
be preserved in the earth ? 



/ 



CENEALOGY. 

Marriage and parentage thus unite, in the providence of God, to form 
and maintain the family, which furnishes both the occasion and material 
for genealogy, this being simply ''an enumeration of ancestors and 
their diildren in the natural order of succession."

THE NAME. 



The most andent and important record of the kind, unparalleled in- 
deed in its nature, is the genealogical table given in the New Testament; 
extending, as recorded in one case, from Abraham, and in the other from 
Adam, to Christ, a period of four thousand years. 

^ Mary, the noble virgin of David*s royal race," of whom the Saviour 
was bom, terminates the long series of generations, which, sustained 
by life-giving power, like a golden chain extends onward through 
the whole course of development preceding the advent of Christ. No 
other nadon but hers oould furnish such a genealogy ; no other book 
than the Bible publish it to the world. 

THE NAME. 

Of LawTBDoe, as a personal and family name, it is suffident to say,' as 
to the orthography, that it is now almost universally spelled and written 
Lawrence^ and not Laurefiee or Launranee, as formerly was the case. 

The derivation of this name of men may be traced to the Latin word 
Lauruij — Laurentitu* Its aignification has been thus given on the 
Town Becords of Hingham, Mass.,^ first page : ^ Christian names Ibr 
men now most used with the signification, Lawrence, — flourishing like 
a bay-tree." 

Laurentius, also called St Laurence, chief deacon of Sixtus, Bishop 
of Bome, is the first person known to whose name our own bears any 
resemblance. 

To Sixtus, going to martyrdom, he sud, " Whither goest thou, fitther, 
without thy son ? " " You shall foUoW me in three days," was his an- 
swer. And BO indeed it proved. ^ I know," said the Prefect of Bome, 
** ye value yourselves for contemning death, and therefore ye shall not 
die at once." Laurentius was then stripped, extended, and &stened to 
a gridiron, and broiled to death by a slow fire, August 10, a. d. 258. 

ARCHBISHOP LAWRENCE. 

The first individual of this name who lived in England, yet ascer- 
tained, was Lawrence the monk. Collier, in his Dictionary, hns the 
name Latirentius. In Harris's ** History of Kent," it u Lawrence. He 
came from Italy with Austin, who was sent to Britain for the propaga- 
tion of Christianity in the island. 

Upon the death of Austin, he succeeded him to the Archbishopric of

WATEBTOWN AND HOMESTEAD.

Canterbury. He is said to have been both learned and pious ; and, at 
his death, was buried in the Abbey of St Austins, A. d. 91 6. 

WATERTOWN AND HOMESTEAD. 

The Indian name of Watertown, the birthplace of our fiunily, as found 
in its early records, was '^ Pequusset" 

Its present name was probably given on account of the abundant sup- 
'ply of water found there. 

Among the fiunilies which first setUed in Watertown were those of Sir 
R. Saltonstall and Bev. George Phillips, in all a dozen or more, that 
came over in the Arbella, a ship which arrived at Salem in June, 
1680. 

Proceeding from Salem to Charlestown, they next pa need up Charles 
River about four miles, and began their eettlement, the fourth in the 
oolony, which rapidly increased in numbers and prosperity. Though in- 
land, the place derived great advantage from the tide-water of the 
Charles River. 

On the earliest list of proprietors is found the name of ** John Law- 
rencer" His homestead of eight acres was bounded east by Common 
Street, south by John BiscWs homestead, north by T. Hawkins, west 
by his own nine acres of meadow. He was the grantee of ten lots, and 
purchaser of Isaac Cnmmin$'s grant of tbirty-fivp acres, in the ** Great 
Dividends.** 

On his removal to Groton, in 1662, he sold his homestead — a dwell- 
ing-house and aboiit thirteen acres, *^ being the now mansion-house of 
said John Lawrenise " — to John Biscoe,

He was admitted a freeman, April 17, 1637, when about 
twenty-eight years old ; though it will be seeny'by the early 
Massachusetts Records, that the freeman's oath was given 
at first to males of only sixteen years. Feb. 28, 1636, he 
received three acres of land, his share of a grant then made 
to the townsmen, a hundred and six in number. In 1650, 
be bought of the town fifteen acres of common land (called 
King's Common). '^In 1654, Hugh Mason received of 
John Lawrence, clerk, £2 17s. 6d., money for town or par- 
ish use.** His removal to Groton is determined by various 
fiftcts and dates. Town records are in existence, dated June 
23, 1662 ; the first probably made. As one of the original 
proprietors, he owned '* a twenty-acre right." The sale of 
his lands and mansion-house in Watertown was made in 
1662. In December of the same year, it appears by the 
records of Groton, ** meet men were found amongst the in- 
habitants,*' of whom ^ John Lawrence" was one, ^who 
were chosen selectmen." He was evidently a man of some 
intelligence and influence, and held a good place in the

She was the daughter of Maj. Philip Gobs, of Winchester, 
N. H. 

Mother was the dear name of the surviving parent, and 
what is purer, more fixed and enduring than a mother's 
love ? She speaks only in accents of kindness ; her eyes 
beam with tenderness and solicitude ; her hands minister 
day and night to the comfort of her offspring; her kiss 
is the sweetness of parental affection; her unceasing 
anxiety and untiring activity show that the world itself 
is less a portion to her than even a wayward child. 
Inestimable is the treasure of her counsels and reprooft, 
her prayers and holy life, her parting blessing and dying 
testimony. 

Such was the whose death has been here noticed ; such her 
lovCy such her life !

The names of the gentlemen invited were as follows : P. T. 
Jackson, Thos. H. Perkins, Francis C. Lowell, Geo. W. 
Lyman, Nathan Appleton, William Storgis, Abhott 
Lawrence, John A. Lowell, William Appleton, William 
Lawrence, Eben Chadwick, Ignatius Sargent 

From the river at Andover the party was taken to the 
Merrimac House in Lowell, where the association had 
met, and the purpose of the gathering was explained, a 
plan of the vicinity of Bodwell Falls exhibited, in all 
eome 1900 acres bonded, and that a dam could be made 
high enough to give a fiJl of about 80 feet, etc, for all 
which the Essex Company had been chartered. ^ We 
did not enter into this," it was stated, ^«s a money 
•speculation, but as a grand project requiring millions of 
dollars to illustrate it;** and we proposed to put the 
whole into Uidr hands for that purpose, providing only 
§0T the expenses incurred ; namely, $3,000, paid subse- 
quently to Mr. Saunders by the Essex Company. 

The proposal thus made was fully approved and consum- 
mated. 

Mr. Samuel Lawrence took deeds and pud for them, hav- 
ing loaned money of A. db A. Lawrence & Co., and of 
his own Company, which was soon after refunded by the 
Essex Company. 

The date of the organization was April, 1845. Mr. Abbott 
Lawrence was chosen President, and the Directors made 
choice of Charles S. Storrow as manager and engineer, 
who is still in charge of the business of the Company. 

In 1847 the inhabitants of the town applied for an act of 
incorporation, and at a meeting of prominent dtisens 
^ the name Lawrence " proposed, ** was unanimously as- 
sented to, as an acknowledgment of the merits of the 
fiimily," rather than of any single member of it 

Lawrence is well regarded as an offshoot of Lowell, which 
city has not improperly been considered an outgrowth 
of Waltham.

6E19EAL06Y OF THE 



Generation No. VU. 

For a few months in 1873, supplied the First Congrega- 
tional Church, St. Johnsbury, in the absence of the pas- 
tor. My father and mother were members, and he one 
of the first deacons of the church. In August, 1872, my 
daughter, Mary Temple, went by arrangement proposed 
to Ohio, to spend two years in the Lake Erie Seminary 
at Painesville, and then return to the fiunily. 

For three years and a half since the death of their mother, 
the care of the family had rested on me, during which, 
by a constant struggle and patient endurance of the deal- 
ings of Grod's providence, my children had been healthy 
and improving, and our home was a happy on^ to us oiZ, 
though wanting the presence, love, and influence of her 
wlio had been its light and joy. The return of the eld- 
est child was antidpated with great pleasure by herself, 
aU at home, also by others interested in our welfare. 

At this place there oomes in a chapter of fiunlly history, 
private and personal, whidi it is not necessary to muke 
a part of this sketch. 

The whole case is strange, unnatural, and crushing to a 
fisUher's home and heart, the detuls of which '^ on record 
with letters and statements attesting — are painful to be 
recited. 

A part of 1874 and 1875 was spent in Stanstead, P. Q., 
while publishing a " History of Stanstead County," com- 
piled by B. F. Hubbard, but not completed. ''The 
whole was revised, abridged, and published with addi- 
tions and illustradons," and printed in Montreal, making 
a volume of about 400 pages, of some value to the pub- 
lic, but of no pecuniary profit to the publisher. 

During the months of October and November, 1874, sup- 
plied the Congregational Church in Eaton, P. Q., the 
pastor being out of health. 

During the years of ministerial labor have had, at times, 
students in languages, etc., and have served on school 
committees in all places where I have resided as a minis- 
ter, taking active interest in the cause of education.

BBIEF NOTES OF NEW FAMILIES. 



For some yean it had a amall iDCome from a grant of half a township of 
land in Maine, made by the State in 1797. 

Contributions for the permanent endowment of the institution were made by 
THlliam Lawrence, Esq., of Boston, with whom his brother Amos cooperated, 
providing houses for residence of teachers, and for boarding students, a large 
and valuable library, apparatus, &c., in consideration of which, at the request 
of the trustees, the Legislature; in 1847, changed the name from Grotoi^ to 
Lawrence Academy. 

The location is one of the pleasantest in New England, while ndhoads 
bring it into easy oooununication with all parts of the country. 

The large, new, and commodious building, erected on the site of the old, is 
erery way adapted by its apartments, fixtures, rentilation, &c., to the impor- 
tant objects of the Academy. 

Bigelow Hall, for the aocommodatioD of atodents, has a fine situation, 
q>acious rooms^ well furnished and ventilated, with board, rent, and care of 
room, at $4.00 per week. 

The Library of %bout 2,600 books is open weekly to students without chaige. 

The Cabinet has a good collection of minerals, shells, medals, &c. 

!nie Laboratory is laige and amply famished, and there are initruments 
for use of students in certain branches, with apparatus for lectures and experi- 
ments by teachers. 

Listmction is given to students of both sexes arranged in three courses : — 

1. The Classical prepares for admission to college, and requires three years. 

2. The Classical and Scientific includes, with Latin and other languages, 
the higher branches of education, being adapted to qualify for teaching, for 
business, and the most important and useful positions in life; continues four 
years. 

8. An English course is arranged for those wishing to pursue it, the studies 
of which occupy three years. 

Each year has three terms. Fall, Winter, and Su«*v: — «. Spring vacation 
two weeks in March ; Summer, eight weeks from annual examination the last 
of June. 

The rates of tuition according to studies : — 

In English, $7.00 ; Classical, $8.00. 

Drawing, Painting, Music, French, and German, additional rates. 

Students fitting for college, in certain cases, have aid fit>m funds. 

At the Annual Exhibition a diploma or certificate of graduation b given to 
students completing a regular course of study. 

Instructors (1875). 

Bev. James Flxtchkr, Principal. Teacher of Latin, Greek, and Ger- 
man.

72 BBIEP MOTES OF NEW FAMUJKS. 

That 10 nncb bu been aMertained and pnbluhed for t}ie nw of the preKiit 
and comiog generalloiK U due, it wonld seeni, to the confidence felt In the 
good iotoitioni cheritbed, and boneit efibrts pot forth for their accompluh- 
meDt. 

Hie ezcitemeot awakened in reference to Uie " mone; in England for the 
heirs of Marjr Townlej" hai been qnite general in aome branchei of the 
Lawnaeet, and though now it liat paued awa^ manj hare been led to tiace 
out their ancertrj, and bring their familiea into proper relation to the other 
deicendaata of John Lawrence of Watertown. 

Had bnt a mall part of the money expended In tint buIneM been appro- 
priated for the object, the bmlly of John Lawrence might now haxe aoch a 
hlatorj as no familf has jret {mbliabed. 

Such ai it is, tt ii left to thoM concerned, with the coniciooniew of ba^ng 
done the best poMiUe In the drenmrtaoces. 

It has been aaid that I was " too poor a nan for the buriDeaii" and no doabt 
with Inth, Tet this weak is of a kind in which few rich men think of en- 

-The interest felt and dd giren bj a few members lA the famllj has enabled 
me to attempt what ba* been done. 

F^ this countenance and help a gratefnl ac^owledgment is dne from all 
who haTo ahared in the results of the same. 

Hie perBonal acqaaintance formed in the call^ Tints, and oorrespoadence 
of the work has been pleasant, and afforded lome compensation fbr the labor 
and moQef expended. That the families now represented In the pnbliibed 
blitorj, and those to follow In sttccesaive generations, may be benefited is the 
great satisfaction desired. 

Indeed, if anj' one thooght or wish liaa been preeminent doring the whole 
woit ondertakeo it has been this, — to give importance to the /mniYjr, showing 
Its place and relation in the providence of God and the constitation of social 



lifeo) 






Established by God for the highest Mnal and moral Ictereils of the race, 
it should be regarded with a most sacred respect, and those whom God has 
made one in flesh, affection, and life shonid be cherished and upheld — God 
only parting them asunder.
